Abstract

Internet-based collaboration opens a vast stream of opportunities for developing countries in acquiring international assistance. In this paper, we identify technology transferring from developed countries to developing countries as a potential form of international assistance that can be immensely benefited through collaboration over the Internet. We propose strategic means for facilitating internet collaboration in developing countries and present an example to show the Internet potential in medical technology transferring.
